360/VR is blowing up! This futuristic method of story-telling is unlike traditional filmmaking as we know it.  Samy’s Photo School is now offering hands-on training experience to teach the fundamentals of successfully creating your very own VR/360 immersive videos.

During this workshop, Sherrie Robertson will explore various aspects of 360/VR storytelling including scripting, perspective, interactivity, working with actors, spatialized sounds and storyboarding.  There will be a hands-on overview of the essential 360/VR equipment including an introduction to building 360 worlds with cameras, tripods and rigs. Participants will plan a project and then the will work as a team to create a short 360 experience. The workshop will conclude with a brief introduction to 360 editing, plug-ins and stitching as well as an overview on publishing and distributing your new 360 piece.

No prior knowledge is necessary.  All VR production equipment will be provided during the workshop.  Participants must bring their own WIFI ready laptop with the operating system updated to its latest version.  It is recommended, but not required, that participants bring an external hard drive.  It is necessary to sign up for a free 7-day trial of Adobe Creative Cloud (Premiere).
